Ports depending on FORBIDDEN ports

I'm actually doing a slight superset by looking at dependent ports
of (ignore/broken/forbidden/failed) ports, now that I have updated the
graph and can "see" it better.

It sounds like people are already working on the misc/compat3x dependents.
Most of these ports are antiques.

IMHO sysutils/eject should be fixed; there is a PR for it already: 112754.

We definitely need to find someone who will keep zope up to date.  I have
privately emailed both the maintainer and the submitter of the last N PRs.

There are a few other Python ports marked NO_PACKAGE, and I have also
emailed the maintainers.  This affects about 80 packages.

Fixing all of these would add over 100 packages to the pointyhat builds.

Thanks for taking a look at all of these.
